Sweet Contrary Mosaics

Two posts today, this one's a shorty.

I saw the Sweet Contrary contest over at Stitched in Color in conjunction with Lark Cottons. I couldn't resist playing around with fabrics and the mosaic maker. I've never done it before. It's a lot of fun. You should check it out. Whoever gets voted the winner gets a fat quarter set of their mosaic!!

So here are my two. As I said I've never done this before, so I just picked some colours and then chose whatever fabrics I liked, and then narrowed it down from there. Kind of like the basketball play-offs but with fabric!

The fabrics that won me over are:

Cherry blossom buds and daffodils I guess, with the interminable Irish rain clouds!

This one shouts 'wet green fields' at me!

I will definitely be going back to play with the mosaic maker again! AND, I need to find out about those funky apps that take a photo and pull the main colours from them. They look like a lot of fun too :)

But seriously, go check out this competition!!!


  1. Nice mosaics.
    If you want a pallete from a photo, go to playcrafts.com and use the palette builder. I spend hours on there :-)
